A Short Life Working Group co-chaired by Prof John Dillon (NHS Tayside/ University of Dundee) and Dr Esther Aspinall (NHS Ayrshire & Arran/Glasgow Caledonian University/HPS) has been established to bring together partners from NHS, Health and Social Care Partnerships, and the third sector to agree recommendations for best practice on HCV case-finding, re-engagement in care for people with HCV and HCV care pathways.

A National Stakeholder event will be held this week (Thursday 24 May) at COSLA in Edinburgh to present draft recommendations from this group. Guest speaker Professor Jeffrey Lazarus (University of Copenhagen, University of Barcelona) will present a global perspective and delegates will debate recommendations. The final recommendations will be published later in the year.
